Let's play make-believe for a second.
Imagine that you've been given everything you could ever ask for.
You have more money you can spend in a lifetime. You have the body that you want. Every need is met, and every whim is satisfied.
Want to know the first thing you would do?
You'd burn the whole thing to the ground.
Because at least it would give you something interesting to do.
What I described above is Hell. And although it seems appealing- especially as we battle our way through the challenges of life- it would be the worst thing to ever happen to you.
As a human, you need something to contend with. Something that engages you. Something that, when you push, it pushes back.
Without that, you become agitated. And this agitation builds as you feel yourself grow softer in body and mind. And don't get it twisted. One doesn't need to have the perfect life in order to suffer from this particular hell. All you need to be afflicted by this is a lack of something to contend with.
What you want....or more accurately....what you need, is an opponent.
Something to push you, so you learn to push back harder. Something to challenge and engage you, so you grow stronger and become a better human.
And one of the best ways to engage with the world is to do so physically, through good, hard strength training. And not just any strength training. A particular brand of strength training. The type I practice myself, and teach my clients.
Strength training is as close to magic as it gets. It's unrivaled in it's ability to transform your body and your health in a relatively short period of time. And the confidence, and strength-of-mind it builds makes it one of the most transformative activities you'll ever do.
But it does more than that. It acts as a worthy opponent. It keeps you from suffering the hell described above, and provides just enough friction to turn you into a stronger person and a better human being.
The only side effects are a leaner, more muscular physique, and the world-conquering confidence that comes with it.
So, don't wish for a perfect life. Or a perfect body.
If these things were handed to you, you'd smash them to pieces anyway.
Instead, find an opponent to contend with. Something that will engage you, and push you to be better.
And if you're not sure where to start, then consider the words of Edward Latimore,
"Every man's journey should begin in the gym."
